Galaxy A53 could blow other mid-rangers out of the water in one key area


Last updated: March 4th, 2022 at 21:51 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy A53 is all set to be Samsung’s next hot mid-range phone, after the Galaxy A52 impressed everyone with a huge amount of upgrades over previous phones in the lineup.

The Galaxy A53 is expected to bring upgrades such as a new Exynos chipset (though whether or not an Exynos chip is actually an upgrade remains to be seen) and a larger battery, and naturally, it will ship with Samsung’s newest software out of the box.

In fact, the software might be what makes the Galaxy A53 stand out among the sea of competing devices and make it extremely attractive to prospective customers. Or rather, it’s in terms of software support that the Galaxy A53 could carve a niche of its own in the mid-range segment.

It’s because the A53 is likely to be the first mid-range Samsung phone to be part of the company’s promise of four years of OS upgrades. Currently, Samsung offers three years of OS upgrades to the Galaxy A5x and Galaxy A7x line.

That’s impressive already, but when Samsung recently announced it will be offering four OS upgrades to select A series phones in the future, it didn’t actually mention any specific phone names. That leaves us to assume that it will be the Galaxy A53 (and the Galaxy A73) that will be taking advantage of what is undoubtedly the best software support policy outside of the Apple ecosystem.

Unfortunately, it seems the improved software support and hardware upgrades might make the Galaxy A53 a little pricier than the Galaxy A52s 5G, and that might offset some of its allure. That said, it’s all rumors at this point so we wouldn’t recommend taking anything seriously until the Galaxy A53 goes official.

Which could be soon, considering it’s almost been a year since the Galaxy A52 was announced, so stay tuned!
